Who is this Micro-credential for?
- Transport professionals, planners, and policymakers that need to interact with macro transport models and interpret their outputs.
- The models used in this micro-credential follow the structures mandated by the National Transport Authority and will provide the learner a comprehensive overview of the structure of these models and as such would be valuable to those requiring knowledge on how these models are used in transport appraisals.
Why should I take this Micro-credential?
- Transportation is responsible for almost 20% of our annual CO2 emissions in Ireland. Therefore, it is more important than ever to understand how and why people travel and to collect data on these movements with the goal of reducing travel time and emissions.
- Both the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Bill 2021 and the recent Programme for Government stipulate that transport emissions must fall by 51%.
- This Transport Modelling and Planning - Micro-credential course at Trinity College Dublin covers the basis of the four-stage transport model used by National Transport Authority in the evaluation of transport projects.
- Providing students with detailed knowledge of the concepts and processes of transportation modelling.
What will I learn?
- Advanced fundamental knowledge on macro transport modelling and evaluation of transportation schemes. Public transport network design and the interactions between land use planning and transport are also covered in this micro-credential.
- Case studies are used to explain the stages in transport analysis and design.
- Evaluate transport networks using the four-stage model.
- Discuss how transport networks are designed.
- Apply discrete choice models to transportation problems.
- Explain how activity-based transport models link into the traditional four stage model.
- Identify the links between land use and transport planning.
- Design and plan public transport routes.
- Model the interactions between transport and emissions.
